Diddy told us back when he was Puff Daddy that his Bad Boy Entertainment label wasn't going anywhere, so we're not really surprised that there's a Bad Boy Family Reunion tour coming up this summer. And to follow the lead of Kanye, Drake, and the Biebs, you can buy tour merch at the Bad Boy x Invisible Bully pop-up shop on Bowery starting Thursday, May 19th. Take that, take that.
In addition to selling an exclusive range of concert merch like T-shirts, tank tops, sweatshirts, sweatpants, and accessories, the pop-up will celebrate the Notorious B.I.G.'s birthday week with ticket giveaways, DJ sets, and special appearances.
This weekend, Diddy is hosting a two-day blast-from-the-past concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn — on what would have been Biggie's 44th birthday — featuring Lil' Kim, Mase, Faith Evans, Mario Winans, 112, Carl Thomas, the Lox, and French Montana before the Bad Boy reunion tour officially kicks off in August. There's also a free Today show concert this Friday.
The pop-up will be open at 355A Bowery Thursday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
